Transcript of Marine Biome
We hope that you have learned the basics of the marine biome, and that you enjoyed this presentation. Bill Clinton said he thinks the next frontier man will explore is the water. Hopefully this has inspired you to help with that.We hope you particularly enjoyed learning about this wonderful biome! Thank you and have a nice day!
What do you suppose you were watching? Just the biggest biome around. What am I talking about? The marine biome! Today we will go into relative depth about the awesomeness of the marine biome. Maybe, just maybe, boost your knowledge about this awesome biome!
What is it?
Some main facts are that 75% of the world are oceans and other freshwater sources. The marine biome is uninhabitable to many of the creatures in other biomes such as surface biomes.

There are a wide variety of animals in the ocean, which includes polar oceans and ones near the equator. You have seen many of these in the video, and there are some like the picture on the left, that need oxygen. (By the way, he likes you.) Two questions that can be answered are the fact that this includes all oceans, not just one. Also, there are different species for different areas due to climate, food, abiotic factors, etc... Another one it is the most diverse biome in the world with over one million species, and many that we haven't even discovered yet. There may be more species in this biome than in all the land biomes combined (maybe, I'm not completely sure about this).
There are also many plants that are in the ocean, and some even make up whole entire habitats (ex: coral)! Many marine plants are unicellular and just float around. Others are multicellular and grow from the sea floor. The producers that float around are well adjusted to the environment. They are often eaten, but there are too many of them to count. This ecosystem would die out if these didn't exist.
Kelp support wildlife. Without the kelp, this ecosystem would be incomplete.
Clownfish, one of many fish species in the marine biome.
Here is a coral reef.
The landscape of the marine biome varies from coral reefs to open ocean and even estuaries, where the fresh water rivers and salt water oceans meet. The coral reefs are typically in the warmer areas, the open ocean is anywhere, and the estuaries are where land meets ocean with fresh river water. The estuaries support both salt and fresh water life.
There's always a human impact on anywhere you go, but many things we do affect this biome so much. When the cruise ships go out, the lights and motor disturb wildlife. When we dump things down the drain, it goes to the ocean. When we throw things on the beach, we could just be throwing them to the fish. They are affected more than you think. Sometimes, it even means death.
We affect this biome so much!
It's movie time!
The algae in the marine biome supplies a large amount of the oxygen for the rest of the world
There is one species of fish called the mollusc which, strangely, has 42 killer enzymes.
There is also the box jellyfish, which is multiplying and is destroying much of the ocean and fishing industries.
It is in Word. This will take one second. Sorry.
